Fresh Air Fund Seeks Hedge Fund Hosts

The Fresh Air Fund is again in need of host families for this summer. If you or someone you know is able to host, please sign up now.

In 2010, The Fresh Air Fund's Volunteer Host Family program, called Friendly Town, gave close to 5,000 New York City boys and girls, ages six to 18, free summer experiences in the country and the suburbs. Volunteer host families shared their friendship and homes up to two weeks or more in 13 Northeastern states from Virginia to Maine and Canada.

Many thanks to previous host families who have opened up their homes for a few weeks each summer, helping children growing up in New York City’s toughest neighborhoods to experience the joys of Fresh Air experiences.
